Ideas For a "Smoky" "Spicy" Brine?

Any ideas for a smoky or spicy brine to pickle some Serrano Peppers?

This is the brine i'm basing it off of, but i was thinking i could use maybe some cumin seed or something?

1 1/2 to 2 lbs serranos
2 medium onions sliced thin
6 ice cubes
1/4 cup coarse ( Kosher ) salt
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon mustard seed
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon turmeric

How about these additions?

RC Fine Food Chipoltle Powder
Liquid Smoke
Smoked Paprika
Maybe sub smoked salt for the kosher

Smoked paprika and liquid smoke are your best bets for smoky flavor.
For spicy just use some ground cayenne.

Just my two cents, but I think your 1/2 tsp. turmeric might get lost amongst the other flavors.
